BUSINESS AND THE WOMAN
Mrs. Mary S. Holladay, the only woman railroad
president In the United States, has gone back to so
ciety. She has disposed of her traffic line, the Wil
llamaburg, Greenville & St Louis, for a round million
of dollars, and has announced that she has had
enough; that business — at least, the railroad busi
ness — is no place for a woman.
"One cannot look after large affairs and attend to
one's family," she declares. "Then, too, a business life
sooner or later hardens a woman," she continues.
Mrs. Holladay was a success aa a railroad
president, so far as the business end of it Is concerned.
So that failure had no part In her decision. Just how
keen and enterprising — and also how feminine — she is,
•will be seen by her further statement:
"When I was a director of the road they would not
give me an annual pass because I was a woman. I had
to get myself elected president to get that pass."
Of course, now the man in business will carp at this
action of Mrs. Holladay, and say it was "Just like a
•woman." So it waa. She felt that she was entitled
to the perquisites that went with her directorship — few
enough, In comparison with some, if an annual pass
comprise them — and if she couldn't have them one
way she took the thoroughly womanly alternative.
Men -would have broken up the directorate, wrecked
the road, put it through a receivership and milked it
dry. She merely "got herself elected president."
But that isn't the point; the thing to note is that
Mrs. Holladay could not be a good president and a
good home-keeper at the same time. The usual railroad
presidency is popularly supposed to be a sinecure — the
main duties to consist in riding about the country in
a private car. How, if this be true, and if such light
duties unfit one for home making, must the case be
with those women in business who work for their liv
ing and not merely as a fad?
That there are many excellent home-keepers In busi
ness goes without saying. That many women are in
business as a fad and not from necessity Is equally
true. Of the former' — those who work because they
must — perhaps It is charitable to suppose that they
make the best -homes possible, and that they would
not be in business had they a free choice. Of the
faddists, one must presume that success lies as to
■whether' they ..tire first, of trade or eociety.
LOS ANGELES HERALD! MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 33, 1905.
GRAFT AND THE HEART OF MAN
Arthur M. Seymour, district attorney of Sacra
mento, whoso record as a prosecutor of grafters and
boodlers entitles him to speak, declared in the Herald
yesterday that the cure for this grafting and boodllng,
the greatest ill of the body politic, was not In the law.
Instead, he said, it must all go to the man himself, and
reform his inmost heart.
Mr. Seymour is a lawyer — a good one. He knows
the laws well. It is his business to endeavor to find
in them a remedy for the troubles of the community.
And when he declares that the law cannot cure, Is it
fair to presume that the law is Inadequate, and needs
But further, Mr. Seymour says there are laws
enough. It Isn't the law that is at fault, but the lack
of heed for the legal requirements now existent— a sort
of contempt for them, a feeling that It is "smart" to
evade them, and a veiled approbation for the "clever"
man who can steal and not be caught. That, he be
lieves, is the root of the cvil — the laxity of the public
conscience which permits these conditions to exist.
And hence his call for a change of heart.
The right and strength of these assertions are be
yond controversy. History sustains Mr. Seymour ab
solutely. From the first recorded age, men have had
laws, both of their own making and given them di
rectly by their God. In unmistakable terms they have
declared: "Thou shalt not steal." And for stealing —
and that's all graft is— not only are there divine pun
ishments, but, what is vastly more to many men, hu
manity has devised penalties as well. And yet grafting
and boodllng were never more prominently mentioned
in criminal annals than they are now.
The remedy is with the Individual, and depends
on his own heart. While man believes that he can
steal, graft or boodle, and cheat the punishment by
not being caught, the evil will exist. Not till it is
realized that the great sin is in the doing Itself; that
therein man commits evil not only against his fellow
man, and society in the complex, but against himself
and his God, will he be reformed. Not till the grafter
and boodler Ss reprobated as r moral leper, an outcast
and a wretch, will there be a betterment. In his own
heart, truly, must a man reform — cease the worship
of mammon and stand for character and real good.
Then, and not till then, will these evils be abated— and
all tho laws In the world will not do more than smother
and abate the trouble meanwhile.
The "greater" First National bank, with which have
been combined recently the Los Angeles National an!
the Southwestern National banks, opens its doors this
morning, a fit financial power for the "greater" Lob
Angeles now evolving itself from the elements here
abouts. The city needed a great and powerful bank,
and the heads of these institutions came to the front
and provided one. Its success is assured. The Herald
is glad to be the first to congratulate the community
on its good fortune in possessing so stable, fine and
splendid an institution.
MASSACHUSETTS' MACEDONIAN CRY
"It makes a heap o' difference whose ox is gored."
This la an old saying, and a trite one, but it Is pe
culiarly applicable just now to the political situation
in Massachusetts, and through general terms, to that
In the whole country. For, just as In the centuries
past Massachusetts led the colonies In their fight for
political liberty, she now seemingly is taking the fore
front in a similar battle for industrial and commercial
The Issue in Massachusetts right now Is tariff re
vision. Strangely enough, the Republicans are making
the fight for it Not that the Democrats are idle; they
never have ceased to battle along this very line. But
hitherto the Republicans have been rock-ribbed be
lievers in the protective tariff; the higher, the better.
Dingley, whose name adorns the present customs law,
is from Maine, a one-time colony of the old Bay state,
and Aldrlch, who, with Lodge, Massachusetts's own
senator, led the upper house fight for the same odious
law, Is from Rhode Island. Hence, the Dingley bill
may be presumed to have embodied the quintessence
of the desires of Massachusetts Republicans on tariff
But Massachusetts Republicans are now in rebellion
against this very law. They have arisen In their
might and have joined in a demand for a reduction,
which has shaken the very foundations of the "stand
patters'" citadel! They declare the existing sched
ules are "exorbitant, unjust, iniquitous and damaging."
They have no faith in thorn, and they join the Demo
crats in a vigorous howl for a "tariff for revenue
And well they may, for no part of the United
States has suffered so greatly from that Infamous law
than has New England, of which Massachusetts is the
heart. Essentailly a manufacturing country, its poor
soil and rigorous climate making agriculture precarious
at best, its farms worn out and its shipping trade
languishing, New England must depend on its factories
for its life. Great and numerous are these, and staple
are their products. One would surmise that If any
region in the land would prosper under a high tariff,
this would be it.
But while the farming communities everywhere,
whom the tariff ignores, are rolling In wealth, New
England, and especially Massachusetts, suffers. The
mills are closing, the looms are Idle, the factories
stand in quietude, and the great power plants are cold
and dead. The tariff, which upholds the price of the
raw producets which are the food of these industries'
capacious maws, makes their importation Impossible
if the products are to be sold at a living profit. The
Dingley wall stands like the great bulwark of China,
shutting in New England and cutting It off from the
rest of the world — the producing world. And so thou
sands go hungry and sit in enforced idleness while this
fetich of tho Republican party remains impregnable.
The Macedonian cry has therefore gone out. The
Republicans of Massachusetts see their own ox gored,
and they send forth a despairing wall! "Come over and
help us!" The most pronounced advocates of monu
mental duties when they were supposedly profitable,
they now find that the very Frankenstein they called
forth is their Nemesis. Well may they shout
and seek for relief in their dire need— for -relief there
is none. The party turns them a deaf ear. Arrogant
and stiff necked, supreme In its power, it scorns the
plea of a small district, which it may well do with
The Republicans of Massachusetts aro "up against
it." Their party holds for them no hope. Only In the
unswerving policy of the Democracy and Its war cry
for a quarter of a century is there a sign of relief.
The Herald Is informed by the California Promo
tion committee of San Francisco that the firm which
recently issued a circular reflecting upon Southern
California has withdrawn the same and has issued a
new one containing no such derogatory statements.
The committee further assures The Herald that so far
as its Influence prevails no statements reflecting on
this part- of the State will be permitted.
Suits In Variety
Perhaps there was never before so
great a variety In tailored suits, for,
aside from the use of decorations, there
Is every possible latitude In the shape
and cut of the coat, says a foreign let
ter. It may be a fitted coat, with
basques, pieces or the little dlrectoire
jacket, which has rroved to be more
generally becoming than was thought
when first Introduced. There are count
less examples of boleros from which
to choose, some snug to the figure and
others loose and falling off the shoul
ders. A pretty feature of some of the
boleros Is the extension of the front
pieces, which cross slightly and fall
over the belt.
Fix a certain day for carefully going
Into the domestic accounts and a cer
tain day for their payment. It is easy
to rectify an error which has happened
during the past week, but memory is
apt to fall after a longer period. A
special drawer or pigeonhole should be
kept for the weekly books and bills and
the housekeeping account book.
When You Buy a Hat
It Is an old story that, while the
American woman regards her hat only
as being suitable to her face, the
French woman Is even more particular
about her profile and the appearance of
the sides and back of her hat. For it
Is very true that we cannot always
stand face to face with the whole
world, and the critics in thn rear are
those whose remarks are most harsh.
Remember this, then, in choosing a
new hat. Take a handglerss and view
the hat from all sides before selection.
Little Change In Sleeves
The moderately full sleeve continues
to be accepted, and there are no indi
cations of change in the sleeve outline.
The long sleeve is set in reasonably
full at the shoulder and either as
sumes modified glgot lines or ordinary
coat sleeve lines, or is draped or puffed
above the elbow and worn with a
close-fitting undersleeve, usually trans
parent. The dressy afternoon sleeve

careful housekeepers realize the advan

to give a desirable tone to the sur

of their personal appearance, and for
this reason delicate shades of yellow,

the edges, removing the crusts and

BIG STAKES PLAYED
FOR IN NEW YORK
INSIDE WORKINGS OF MAYOR'
Hearst's Aim to Gain Recognition and
Make Trouble — Old Bosses Threat
ened With Extinction by
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Oct. 22.— Anticipating
the re-election of Mayor George B.
McClellan, possibly by an Increased
majority, as mayor of New York city
next month, political leaders In New
York state are giving him much promi
nence In their calculations with re
spect to national politics.
Tammany Hall ■ politicians make no
secret of their intention to force the
nomination of McClellan for governor
of New York state in 1906, and to
establish Charles F. Murphy, the pres
ent leader of that organization, as
leader of the state Democracy, to fill
the place long held by 'ex-Senator
David B. Hill, and only relinquished
by Mr. Hill to give precedence to Judge
Alton B. Parker for the personal direc
tion of his own presidential campaign.
A curious situation Is thus developed
in the Democratic party. McClellan's
nomination for governor can only be
achieved through the ascendancy of
Mr. Murphy, and Mr. Murphy's as
cendancy would mean the political
downfall of Mr. Hill and the reduction
to the ranks of Senator P. H. McCarren
and Judge B. Cady Herrtck. These
combined events would signalize a con
quest of the New York state Democ
racy resembling very much the con
quest of 1898, when Richard Croker,
then the leader of Tammany Hall,
forced the nomination for governor of
Augustus Van Wyck, brother of Robert
A. Van Wyck, who was then the mayor
of New York city. Metropolitan con
trol of New York state politics has
been rare, and always temporary.
Two Reasons for It
Two very good reasons exist why the
conquest of the state Democracy now
projected by Tammany may be made
to last, if accomplished, until the next
Democratic national convention. Mayor
McClellan's election to the office of
governor would, if accidents of his
administration as governor do not
create Insurmountable obstacles, render
him the logical candidate of the state
for the presidential nomination in 1903.
and probably attract to his support
many of the strongest conservative
Democratic leaders of the east. His
election as governor would inevitably
extend the spoils system of Tammany
hall to the state government, which,
having new legal authority to expend
$101,000,000 for the widening of the Erie
canal, affords extraordinary oppor
tunities for political organization along
the lines of the patronage system.
Looking forward to 1908, friends of
Mayor McClellan anticipate that his
candidacy for president may cure fac
tionalism in the party, and become
popular with the masses without alien
ating the conservatives whose votfiß
are necessary to carry doubtful north
ern states. They confidently rely upon
the development of party sentiment
favorable to the nomination of a vig
orous man who has not been identified
with factional troubles which have
rent the party asunder since 1896.
Wherein McClellan is now stronger
as a presidential possibility than he
was last year, when abortive attempts
were made by Tammany to swing the
Cleveland strength for him, does not
appear. His course as mayor has
run smoothly. There have been no
scandals of importance in his adminis
tration, except those which attend the
operation of Tammany contracting con
cerns organized for graft under every
Tammany administration. But if a
Democratic convention for the nomina
tion of governor were to be held today,
there would doubtless be very active
and perhaps successful opposition. Ac
cidents of the present situation have,
however, made McClellan's future look
brighter than it did a year ago.
No Organized Opposition
City opposition to Tammany Hall has
ceased to be an organized opposition
since Mayor McClellan was inducted
into office. There is a very widespread
Jealousy among Tammany contractors
and business men over the monopoly
of city favors granted by the McClel
lan administration to Mr. Murphy and
a few of his closest friends, but the dis
affected content themselves with growl
ing, knowing that the present is not a
good time to apply the only possible
remedy, namely, the defeat of Tam
The Citizens' union, the organization
which cast 150,000 Independent votes for
Seth .Low in 1897 and which. In conjunc
tion with the Republicans, elected him
Mayor in 1901, Is moribund. The Repub
licans have been unable to work out a
successful fusion with other anti-Tam
many bodies. McClellan 1b opposed
therefore only by the straight Republi
can organization, which cannot hope to
cast more than one-third of the city's
whole vote, and by W. R, Hearst, run
ning independently as the candidate of
the Municipal Ownership league. From
the Republicans McClellan has little to
fear. The only uncertainty which con
fronts him in his candidacy is the
But little effort has been made by
McClellan and his colleagues in the
Tammany Democracy to neutralize the
sentiment of the Democratic party fa
vorable to municipal ownership. The
Democratic platform contains Us usual
declaration in favor of municipal own
ership. The mayor qualified the plat
form declaration of his party some
what by saying In his speech accepting
"As a Democrat I believe that that
community is best governed which is
least governed, and that where indi
vidual effort and private enterprise has
accomplished the same result as gov
ernment, government has no right to
Interfere. Where, however, public util
ities conducted by private enterprise
fall in giving the people adequate ser
vice, then I believe it is the duty of the
government to take control. The fran
chise wealth of the city belongs to the

with. Franchises should be granted

In the slow progress of the present
campaign developments have resem
bled the city campaign of 188 S. In that
year Theodore Roosevelt was the Re
publican candidate for mayor. Both
wings of the city Democracy, the coun
ty Democracy and Tammany Hall sup
ported Abram S. Hewitt. Henry George
ran on An independent ticket, attract
ing support from the same elements to
which the Hearst campaign is now ap
pealing. Mr. Roosevelt received 60,000
votes, Mr. Hewitt received 90,000 and
Mr. George 68,000.

depression and discontent, while Hearst
runs upon the issue of municipal own
ership, reduced by good times to a
question of business expediency, should
not be lost sight of.
Tammany realizes that its only seri
ous problem of the campaign is to hoM
the labor vote against Hearst and for
McClellan. To accomplish this its ora
tors will talk municipal ownership pure
and simple in the effort to take the
wind out of the Hearst sails. The Dem
ocratic leaders are of the opinion that
they will be able to hold the Hearst
vote low enough to give McClellan a
plurality approximating 76,000 votes,
and possibly to give him the majority
of all the votes cast.
